The Break focuses on finding gaps in social services, researching world best practice support methods, seeking to enhance these methods, and then implementing these better-than-best practice methods. This has grown since our inception in February 2018 to 36 different project areas and 300 volunteers supporting this mission. We do everything from supporting youth descending into the justice system to find more prosocial hobbies, to mental health supports, right through to assisting the elderly to be immortalised in print (see No Snowflake 1 memoir on Amazon.com.au). We run regular walks (with games), kayak trips, anger management classes, relapse prevention classes, offer case management & counselling, video projects to promote struggling artists, and develop pitches to the government to resolve issues currently that could be better managed.
We currently have funding to get the veteran community into prosocial hobbies like social kayaking, walks in nature, mindfulness, therapeutic arts, picnics, even DnD with/without their kids, etc. We either run this as a veteran-only undertaking, or allow vets to bring family/friends, or even just have vets mix with the community to build networks outside their immediate circle. Our activities are all free. We operate on the FEPSIA model, meaning all we do must be Fun, Emotionally and Physically Safe, Inclusive, and Accessible. We are run by an ex-126 sigs member, so have a special interest in supporting vets.
